    yeah i get the point......

    Somehow i kinda agree with the comments said about people using the laser guidance part of it, Similar to the whole tracer dart system in BC2. people will use it at first -- be amused by it, then get bored of it and not bother with it anymore. which alltogether makes the whole idea rather obselete. No laser designator = no bombing run = useless function/feature.

    I understand how they want to promote the team work aspect of it though. but im sceptical if its going to work.

    Make sure your Origin name is what you want your soldier to be named. Perusing the FAQ and I saw this:

    Kinda hard to do that when EA is using my name from 5 years ago. Plus they refuse to change it. BS total BS (in lemur king voice) "ohh we can't change that ohhh."

    PC beta - Do we need to preorder to get access to it at all? Not part of 48 hours exclusive period

    The way I understand it, pre-ordering through Origin gives you 48 hours early access to the public open beta. So anybody can play the beta starting the 29th, Origin pre-orderers get it the 27th.

    the point is tell origin that so they get their ass in gear! :)

    i'm sorry, important point i skipped: it was from D2D.
    i didn't mean to make it sound like EA jipped me, I understand - i just still think it's kinda stupid that a 6 month pre-order from ANYWHERE legitimate doesn't get two days early access.

    oh well, i also got the limited edition for $33 because of the sale at the time, that's the trade-off i guess - $27 for 2 days early beta :)

    Thats true but most of us now a days have 1TB backup drives or more to spare so 15GB will not be much at all. hell I have 40GB of Emulation systems
